Questions is what is the oxidation number of in Al(ClO4)3 ?
Zale101
  • Zale101
Correct. So Oxygen has 12 atoms and -2 charge Chlorine has 3 atoms. Al has a charge of +3 and it has only one atom The overall charge of a compound has to equal to zero. That means, the information that we know can be applied as \(+3+3\color{red}{x}+(-2)(12)=0\) The x in red means that we don't know the charge of chlorine but we know it has 3 atoms.

A shortcut would be to note that if we have \(\text{Al}^{3+}\) and 3 perchlorate ions, each one of the perchlorate ions must have a net charge of \(-1\). Knowing that the oxygen atoms each have a charge of \(-2\), \[-1 = Cl + 4 * O\]\[-1 = Cl + 4*(-2)\]\[-1 = Cl -8\]\[7 = Cl\] so our chlorine oxidation number is +7.
